Bronzolo

Together with Laives and Vadena, Bronzolo is located in the Bassa Atesina region and is embedded in the heart of apple trees and vineyards.

The municipality of Bronzolo is located some 13 km in the south of Bolzano at an altitude of 238 m asl. First mentioned in 1181 as “Branzol”, its name probably derives from the Germanic name Berinza.

The municipality on the left Adige riverbank has become much larger in the last decades and counts more than 2,700 inhabitants today. And even if Bronzolo is located only a few km from the city of Bolzano, the life in the village you can expect is typical for the Bassa Atesina. Moreover there are a large number of possibilities regarding hikes, you can e.g. reach Lake Caldaro, while in the east there are the mighty Dolomite mountains, in the north the city of Bolzano and in the south the Bassa Atesina as well as the Trentino region.

Also cycling or Nordic Walking are popular leisure time activities. Especially in spring, the period of apple blossom, is recommendable for a tour with your bicycle.
